Another Paper Trey Ink project!




The other day as I was taking a piece of gum out of it's cute little box, I thought, "Hhhmmm, this little box would be so cute altered". So I did just that! I took an empty Ice Breakers gum box, covered it with the new yummy PTI paper, filled it with itty bitty Prima flowers.
I thought the sentiment, "Inspire Creativity" was perfect for a little box of Prima flowers. I stamped on the twill ribbon, "Just a little something". I used the Nestabilities ovals to mount the sentiment. I topped the box with the little Prima flowers to give a preview of what is inside the box. Finish it off with little crystal flower centers and there you have it!!

If you'd like to win this little box filled with Prima itty bitty flowers, leave a comment and I'll draw a name from all the comments!

Wow, who'd a thought! Very cute! I would like to win so I can see how to alter small things. I am pretty new at this: very visual and need to see. I hope my PTI order comes today so I can try some new ideas I've seen. Thanks...

Might have to make a few of my own. Have a great weekend!

Wow! What a creative mind you have. Wish I was that creative. I have ideas, but they never turn out like what I want them too. Maybe you should teach us creatively challenged ones how not to be creatively challenged. LOL!! The box is very cute.

Okay, I just have to say that your little box here is absolutely adorable. I'm loving the oval diecut and stamp, just like on your card. Boy do I feel like scrapping, but it'll have to wait 'till all of my sewing is done- drat, b/c you keep tempting me! ;)

Wow what a great idea. I do that too, see the everyday and say "I could alter that". My husband thinks I'm totally crazy -- same with my co-workers.

Your little gum box looks AWESOME with all that yummy PTI paper on it!! Great idea and I'd love to win it!!

Thanks for the inspiration -- off to check out the gum isle at my local corner store.

That is so cute. I don't want to win it as it would be too expensive to post to Australia, but I love the idea.
